Need to know: Caring for your hair at homeTuesday, August 1 2017
To us great hair is healthy hair. Behind every gorgeous head of hair there are a few easy to adopt habits. Healthy hair begins with the right products, tools and lifestyle choices. Here are NINE of our top picks for healthy, happy hair at home.
With a healthy, clean scalp comes healthy hair! Using a cleansing shampoo cleans, prevents build up of oils and removes dandruff. Our must have detox product is Original and Mineral’s Detox Shampoo. With peppermint and tea tree to cleanse, invigorate and cool the scalp this product will make your hair feel minty fresh!
2. USE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
No two people are the same and neither is their hair, therefore everyone’s shampoo routine needs to be different. Shampoo and conditioner creates the foundation for our hair and hairstyle, creating the building blocks for all the other products we use. To find out what shampoo and conditioner you should be using check out our last blog post.
3. STAY AWAY FROM SULPHATE
Sulphates, while effective in cleaning hair, can also cause major DAMAGE to your locks. An easy way to change your hair care routine for the better is buying products marked ‘sulphate free’. We make it a priority to only sell products we would use thats why we only sell low chemical, sulphate free products.
4. MOISTURIZE and TREAT
While most of us have no problem washing and conditioning our hair, it’s easy to forget about maintaining moisture. Avoid breakage, dryness and prevent excessive split ends by using an at home treatment every few weeks.
Products to try:
O&M – The Power Base will help to rebuild and strengthen damaged hair. Its two-in-one treatment will add strength to hair but also leave it looking glossy and healthy.
O&M – Original & Mineral Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque is a delicious, hydrating cream hair treatment to replenish stressed or dry locks.
5. WHAT YOU PUT IN COMES OUT
The best habit you can adopt for your hair and scalp is adopting a healthy life style. Drinking plenty of water and eating well will ensure your hair stays healthy and strong from the inside out.
Olaplex is a revolutionary product that repairs the bonds of the hair from the inside out. Add an Olaplex treatment to any salon service and use the product at home once a week to repair and maintain strong, healthy hair between salon visits. Ask your stylist about Olaplex today!
7. BOX COLOUR IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
Not only does box colour contain nasties such as Parabens and Ammonia it is also a ‘one size fits all’ method of colour hair. This means you may end up with a colour far from the one you desired even though the box might say ‘cool ashy blonde’. For great results we recommend visiting a salon professional.
8. GIVE THE HEAT A REST
It’s no secret that heat styling is bad for your hair and excessive heat can do serious DAMAGE to your locks. We know its hard to avoid heat styling completely. We recommend you pick your battles, if you’re spending the weekend at home why not towel or air dry? If you have to use your curling iron or straightener everyday lower the heat and use products that protect against the heat.
9. USE THE RIGHT TOOLS
If you want to achieve that salon finish at home using the right tools is key:
1. Round brush for bouncy or smooth blowdrys.
2. Tangle Teezer for in showers use and detangling.
3. Good quality hair dryer! Our pick, GHD Air achieve salon quality blowdries every time.
